Orgasol® powder in composites and structural adhesives
Orgasol® powder can help avoid delamination in interlayered carbon fiber/epoxy composites and improve strength in structural adhesives.
Crack propagation at the epoxy resin/carbon fiber interface reduces the strength of fiber-reinforced laminates. To solve the problem, Orgasol® powder can be used as a toughening agent to limit the crack propagation in the resin inter-laminar region.
Due to its narrow and controlled particle size distribution, Orgasol® powder also maintains the thickness of the inter-laminar region during the process that builds the composite structure.
Orgasol® powder also help to limit crack propagation in the structural adhesive improving the mechanical strength.
Structural adhesives also take advantage of this Orgasol® powder property that copes with cracks propagation.
